Abstract

We aim to show how misleading is to say that liberalism can be based only on a conception of liberty as a value and that Kantian liberalism, in particular, de­scribes liberty as a value. An individual can be considered as a moral subject if and only if one can attribute him freedom, and therefore responsibility. Thus, liberty is a possibility condition for every consistent moral and legal system. However, we have to draw a distinction between liberty as a transcendental condition of every moral and legal discourse, and freedom as an empirical and highly problematical description of behaviors.
